Through a series of riddles, Matthias, Cornflower, Abbot Mortimer, Brother Alf, Constance, Brother Methuselah and the other inhabitants of Redwall Abbey try to find the Warrior's Code, as written by Abbess Germaine.
It takes them to the Abbot's dormitory, where a new riddle is found. The crew is then led to The Kitchen, where yet another riddle is discovered on a cider barrel of Ambrose Spike. These lines take them to Great Hall, where the remainder of the Warrior's Code is unveiled.
- Basil Stag Hare appears as a well-known resident of Redwall Abbey in this story, however in Redwall he lived in Mossflower Woods, and met Matthias there for the first time.
